Dutch braids are extremely popular, mainly because they look like they're glued to your hair, like cornrows. They look like they give you extra volume and look very romantic. although making these braids look complicated, it's actually not. they are maid similar like the french braid, only reversed. Instead of putting strand on strand and putting over, strand is put under, which gives a 3D effect. Interesting, right? To make these braids perfect. don't make them when hair is wet, it won't slide then. Comb the hair towards nape and split it in three parts. Put the right strand beneath the middle one, then put the left strand beneath the middle. Keep going like that, putting outside strands beneath the middle one and adding strands of hair as you go. When you reach the nape, finish the braid by continuing with braiding from beneath. At the end, make it firm by using hair spray and you're done! Gorgeous! To make this hairstyle even more prettier, you can use accessories.

The most popular braids on Instagram are definitely boxer braids. These braids are loved by women across the world, and we think that they would be perfect for your flower girls. It's very important to put a texture spray or dry shampoo first, then split the hair in the middle, take one smaller strand from the front and make a classic braid. Fasten it with a pin when you make it. Make the same on the other side. And that's it! You can strengthen it more by applying hair spray to make sure everything is in it's place.

What do you think about waterfall braid? Sounds complicated? Trust us, it's not! This braid is perfect for really long hair. You don't really braid your hair, you just put strand over strand throughout your whole head. Comb the hair and start on the left side. Just a little above the ear, take out a strand that is about 5-6 cm wide and split it in two parts. Put the strand closer to your face over the second one and let it go. Take a new strand to replace the first one and put the lower over the upper one. Repeat the steps until you reach the middle at the back of your head and secure the end sideways. Repeat everything on the other side too and then concert the ends of the waterfall with a transparent rubber band. You can also hide the ends behind the hair and secure them with hairpins.

A simple hairstyle that looks complicated at first, but it is basically made by simple twisting and shifting of the strands. This is a very common hairstyle with brides with long hair, but why not have your flower girls shine with it? Split the hair on the side, comb it and make sure its straight with no knots. On the side with more hair, take a wider strand of hair, split in two parts and twist the front strand over the one in the back. Add more hair to the strand closer to your face and twist it again over the back strand. Keep adding hair to front strands and twist them until you reach the shoulders or use up all the hair. Then it's time to shape the rope. Twist the two parts of the hair in counter clockwise direction and then twist one over the other in clockwise direction. Keep doing that until you reach the top of the hair and secure it with a strong band. Decorate this beautiful hairstyle with flowers.
